Lindsay Lohan threw her support behind the power of social media to “control” one’s “own narrative” following her struggles with the paparazzi during her career.
“I don’t even know. There’s too much of it,” Lohan explained. “No, it is nice. Because now I feel like…when I first started out in the business, none of us had a say in how to control our own narrative.”
“There were paparazzi pictures, and then people ran with it,” she added. “So I think it’s really good that in this day and age, people can say who they are and who they want to be. And I admire and appreciate that.”
“I’m a little jealous because I didn’t have that,” Lohan continued. “But I think it moves really fast and I just try to keep up as best I can. And I check everything before I post it. I’ll send it to people. Because you have to.”
The reporter pressed further about the difficulties of dealing with trolls or messing up on such a wide scale.
“You have to take everything people say with a grain of salt and just be you,” Lohan replied. “And slow down, because everyone’s so quick right now. People just don’t stop. You’ve got to chill.”
In a video from the Cosmo interview Lohan shared on Instagram, the actress revealed which one of her movies she would have liked to have had a sequel.
“Mean Girls,” Lohan replied.
She went on to reveal that her dream role would be playing actress Ann-Margret and being part of a remake of the 1950 classic, “All About Eve.”
